Bruno de Souza is the latest player signed by second-tier Brazilian side Boa Esporte.
A month later it emerged that Bruno - with help of a number of people, including his wife, another former lover and a teenage cousin - had lured Samudio to his home.
Samudio had fallen pregnant with the married Bruno's child following a sexual encounter in 2009.
Bruno reportedly watched as former cop Marcos Santos brutally tortured Eliza before strangling her with a tie in front of her son. She went missing shortly after filing her lawsuit.
Bruno, as he is commonly known, said he would now "concentrate on (his) work".

Vice President Mike Pence visited Louisville on Saturday as part of the effort to sell a White House-backed health overhaul. Ted Cruz was also speaking at the fundraiser, prompting the president's son to take a playful jab.
The 32-year-old Souza previously starred for Rio de Janeiro-based Flamengo.
He said they drove her 220 miles to a property in Belo Horizonte which Bruno and his wife used as a weekend retreat, where she was held captive for six days. On Bruno's orders, the assailants then disposed of Samudio's body by feeding her to his dogs.
His explosive trial heard he ordered her death over a disagreement concerning child maintenance payments.
Edson Moreira, a detective who investigated the case, said: 'His acts were nearly impossible to describe without breaking down - images from the worst nightmare you could imagine'. The baby was found a few weeks later in the care of friends of Bruno's former wife. DNA tests later proved the footballer's paternity.
In 2010, Bruno Fernandes was a successful goalkeeper with first-division club Flamengo and had been tipped to play for Brazil in the 2014 Fifa World Cup finals.

"Women are outraged and so are the general public".
The decision has caused uproar in Brazil and one of their main sponsors, Nutrents Nutrition, has ended its deal with the club. Some fans say they will stop supporting the team.
On Sunday (March 12th), Boa Esporte team President Rone Moraes da Costa, released a statement pushing back against the barrage of criticism.
Indeed, several sponsors have said they will drop the team in protest.
